It's my first trip to Amsterdam and I'm having trouble figuring out what I need for transportation. I was expecting to find something similar to the Oyster Card but I'm not sure if the OV Chipkaart works like that. I arrive on a Saturday and will be doing canal and bike tours as well as the Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum. The Iamsterdam card doesn't seem to be worth it just for transportation and 2 museums. Please let me know if I'm missing something in that thought process.
I will be making day trips to Keukenhof Gardens and maybe Delft or Rotterdam or Den Haag. I'm undecided on what cities I should try to see. I would love to a day trip to Antwerp or Brussels so suggestions are welcome and wonderful. The trip takes place in the next few weeks and please forgive any misspellings.
